Walk over Fairlop Waters

As it was a bright day on Saturday, we decided to make the most of it by going for a walk up to Fairlop Waters to enjoy the countryside before the bad weather set in.

Long walk over Fairlop Water

Making the most of the good Sunday weather (after a very dreary Saturday), we went up to Fairlop Water for a long walk. We went past the memorial for the old WW2 airfield, and as it was remembrance Sunday we went to see the poppies laid at the memorial and noticed that one is presented by the Norwegian Embassy in memory of Jens Herman Gran which was nice to see. We had a coffee outside the Cafe at the Activity Centre before heading back and continuing our walk down through Seven King's Park.

Holiday in Philadelphia

We headed from Sarasota to Philadelphia to visit Liz, Rick and the family. We had a great weekend with them all, on the Saturday there was a big party where everybody got together. On Sunday evening we went to The Victor Cafe where opera students are the waiters - Very different! We then got an Uber cab home with a taxi driver who had studied economics in Oslo!
On Monday before heading home we visited Longwood Gardens to enjoys the flowers and Autumn colours.

Again, a lot of photos were taken, just a selection are below, the rest are here:

Holiday in Sarasota

We're just back from a holiday in Sarasota and Philadelphia. We spent the first 8 days in Sarasota to spend some time on the beach. The weather was excellent, with some warm sunny days. We visited some of our usual haunts, The Waffle House, The City Pier on Anna Marie Island, as well as new ones like Ginny and Jane E's Cafe.
We headed down to St. Armand's Circle for Halloween to see the fancy dress parade, and found a new restaurant we liked, The Madison Avenue Cafe.

A lot of photos were taken....just a small selection below, the rest are here:
